Baked Vegetable Cutlets

Cutlets,veg or non veg forms are always a crowd pleaser and definitely a great appetizer.This time for 'Fried to fav' series -we had this challenge of making these fried cutlets into baked cutlets.And happily I accepted the challenge as I had done it before with chicken cutlets ,broccoli cutlets.This time it was vegetable cutlets.But I should admit that this was the best baked cutlets so far,each time when I baked cutlets I always had a dry bread crust on top which was not appealing as compared to the golden brown fried cutlets.This happened to be a similar try,and tasted just like the fried ones.They were crisp outside with a nice golden color and soft inside.But the deep brown color can't be achieved,however who cares the color,if the same taste is recreated by curtailing some extra calories.So,try these out & enjoy a guilt free delicious snack !!!


Ingredients
potato 2 medium chopped
onion 1 medium sized fine chopped
ginger -garlic paste 1/2-3/4 tsp
carrots 2 medium fine chopped
cabbage  shredded 1/2 cup
beans 1/2 cup chopped fine
cilantro 4-5 sprigs
pepper powder 1/2 tsp
garam masala 3/4 tsp
oil 2 tbsp + 2tbsp
salt
for cover
egg white 1
OR
all purpose flour 3tbsp
corn starch 2tbsp
water 1/2 cup

bread crumbs 1 cup


Method
-Wash and chop all veggies.Take a microwave safe bowl and add the potatoes in it with salt and water.Microwave for 10 mins on high.Mash the potatoes and keep aside.OR Pressure cook the potatoes in a cooker until 3 whistles.Peel and mash the potato, keep aside.
-Heat  2 tbsp of oil in a pan and saute onion till translucent.
-Add the ginger-garlic paste,saute until raw smell disappears.
-Add the chopped beans,carrots,cabbage.Saute until it turns tender and cooked.
-Add the spices,and mashed potato.Add the chopped cilantro.Mix well.Put off flame & let it cool.
-Take small amounts of the mix and roll in your palms to make even patties.
-Take another bowl with egg white or make a thick paste with all purpose flour and corn starch by adding enough water and spread the bread crumbs in a separate plate.
-Dip the patties in egg white or the paste and roll in bread crumbs.
-Pre heat oven to 375 degrees F and keep a tray ready lined with parchment paper.


-Place the patties on the tray.Add a drop of oil in the center of each cutlet so that it evenly spreads.Repeat for all cutlets.(prevents drying of crust)
-Place and bake in the oven for 15-17 minutes.Take this out ,flip the other side and add a drop of oil on the reverse side too.Bake again for 10-12 minutes.Broil the last minute to give a nice color to crust.(But keep a watch over the broiling after 30 secs,varies with oven)
-Remove from oven and serve with ketchup !!


Servings ~ 20 cutlets

NOTES
* You can add any veggies of your choice.The quantities can remain the same.
* Broiling is totally optional,you may burn the cutlets if not properly done.
* You can even use green chillies instead of pepper powder.
* If you are a pure vegetarian then use the all purpose flour,corn starch paste to dip the cutlets and then roll in bread crumbs.

Hi lovely recipe... any other option to coat the cutlets other that egg white?

Thanx for writing..you can make a thin paste of corn starch and all purpose flour and coat them,works fine to an extent.Hope that helps !
